FX has promoted Eric Schrier to vice president of current series and alternative programming.

In his new post, Schrier -- who has been with FX since 2000, most recently as director of current series -- has oversight for all of the network’s existing series, including hits The Shield and Nip/Tuck, as well as development of alternative programming.

"It took me about a day-and-a-half to figure out how gifted and promising an executive Eric is," said FX president of entertainment John Landgraf, to whom Schrier reports, in a prepared statement.

"His oversight of The Shield and Nip/Tuck on behalf of the network has been a key ingredient to the runaway success of those two series," he added. "I’m excited to now be working with Eric as our key development executive in alternative series."
